In Defense of Professor Ellen Lewis of the University of Iowa sign now

Recently, Ellen Lewis, professor of Anthropology at the University of Iowa, received an email from the College Republicans. The following is the account written by Professor PZ Myers at his blog Pharyngula:

---------------------------------
Ellen Lewin is a professor in the anthropology department at the University of Iowa. Like all of us, she is constantly dunned with email announcing this, that, and the other thing at our universities, and sometimes we get email that makes our blood boil. In this case, she got mail from the College Republicans, announcing a "coming out" party (like Republicans in the midwest are a closeted and oppressed minority) that featured some hagiographic movie about George W. Bush (that ignorant ass), an "animal rights barbecue" and other such joyful shenanigans to celebrate the party of morons and thugs and self-destructive ideologues.

Ellen Lewin had enough. Ellen Lewin got angry. Ellen Lewin fired off a one-sentence reply.
---------------------------------

What was that reply? It was simple, obvious, and too the point:

"FUCK YOU, REPUBLICANS."

Later, she issued an apology, but the College Republicans have filed an official complaint.

This petition is an official stance of solidarity with Professor of Anthropology Ellen Lewis of the University of Iowa. If any action is taken against her, w the undersigned stand in defense of Professor Ellen Lewis, strictly because she aid hat we have all wanted to say for a very long time.

The Republican party is the party that wants to raise taxes for the rich and ignore the poor. It is the party that politicizes homophobia and misogyny. It is the party that continually works to tear down the wall of separation between church and state. As PZ Myers says:
---------------------------------
...the Republican party is currently the party of know-nothings, hypocrites, liars, and greed it's the stagnant, festering slime towards which all the worst elements of society now gravitate. The problem isn't college professors snarling at them, it's that the party itself encourages short-sightedness, idiocy, and hatefulness.
---------------------------------

So we, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with Professor Ellen Lewis, saying, with her, loudly and proudly:

FUCK YOU, REPUBLICANS!
